The Perfect Cocktail

With more than two centuries of history behind the cocktail, making them at home or even ordering one in fancy bars can be intimidating. There's certainly an art to making a good drink, but that doesn't mean you have to leave it to the pros. We'll teach you how to be confident with cocktails in our new The Perfect Cocktail guide. 

The Chopping Block has tapped into the knowledge of our Mixologist Tim Williams and his passion for making cocktails approachable for everyone for this photo-rich handbook you'll refer to over and over again. 

In our guide to The Perfect Cocktail, you'll learn the basic techniques of making cocktails, including:

  • When to shake and when to stir,
  • How to muddle,
  • How to use a jigger,
  • How to strain, and
  • How to balance flavors in your cocktails.

We'll also cover what you need in your home bar (it's not as many bottles as you might think!) as well as essential equipment. We've also provided 10 cocktail recipes to put your newfound knowledge to the test. Your friends and family will love your experimental phase of mixology.

Just fill out the form to be on your way to sipping The Perfect Cocktail!
